This is an international course for graduate students. The course will consist of lectures on the complexity of photosynthesizing organisms from Antarctic and subantarctic region with emphasis in the ecophysiological responses of plant and marine algae to the current scenarios of global warming. Based on reading of specialized scientific articles the students will develop a short research project on one of the topics covered during the course. Two field activities are planned to observe, collect samples and apply methods currently used in plant and algal ecophysiology. This will consider one day cruise along the Magellan Strait aboard the research vessel of INACH. These practical activities as well as the corresponding presentation of literature seminars will be evaluated at the end of the course. The venue for the course will be Edificio de Laboratorios Antárticos “Embajador Jorge Berguño Barnes” located in Lautaro Navarro 1245, Punta Arenas
